“Beyond the Huddle: Winning Leadership Ideas From Peyton Manning’s Playbook”

Born into a football family and selected as the first overall pick in the 1998 draft, the legendary quarterback faced high expectations that raw talent alone couldn't satisfy. The future Hall of Famer will reveal how he became a leader on the gridiron and in his 21 Papa John's restaurants, striving to live by his credo: "The Most Valuable Player is the one who makes the most players valuable." In a lively interview, Manning—the only five-time NFL MVP—will likely settle once and for all the debate over who's the better QB, him or his brother Eli.
